Howe Robinson expands into Norway with Bergen office

Shipbrokers Howe Robinson Partners are expanding into Norway with a new office in Bergen focusing on dry cargo.

The new office will be head by former Joachim Grieg director Sturle Waardal and will have strong experience in the dry bulk market with a team that also includes Henrik Lahn-Johannessen, Erland Holm and Walter Birkelund.

“We look forward to this new challenge and to providing a comprehensive, dynamic service to all our clients; exposure to Asian markets through Howe Robinson’s network of offices should be particularly beneficial,” said Waardal.

Bergen is home to over 70 shipping companies with a major presence in the open hatch dry bulk carrier market.

Managing partner of Howe Robinson’s dry cargo business Guy Hindley said: “Bergen is an important centre for the maritime industry and we are delighted to welcome this new team into Howe Robinson.”

Singapore-headquartered Howe Robinson has 12 offices spanning North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
